EducationPhD Candidate in History of Architecture & Urbanism, Dept. of Architecture, Art & Planning, Cornell University.
M.A. (2007) in History of Architecture at Cornell.
Hons. B.A. (2004) in Architecture and History of Art (Double Major) at University of Toronto.
ExperienceThree years of experience as a teaching assistant in the Department of Architecture at Cornell University - prepared and presented 2-hour guest lectures for ~75 architecture students; led weekly discussion sections in architectural history, theory and criticism for 25-30 students at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Prepared discussion topics, readings and assignments. Responsible for advising on and grading student work, providing praise and/or constructive criticism, where necessary. (I believe that students are more likely to improve their academic performance through positive reinforcement and being informed about how they can do better, not just what they did wrong.) Weekly office hours provided students with the opportunity to get one-on-one help to improve their essay writing, research methods, and exam study skills.
HobbiesI am currently completing my dissertation in Architectural History. As an undergraduate at UofT I had several encouraging and inspiring mentors help me get to where I am today; I, myself, now find great enjoyment in paying forward that same kindness and patient direction to other students interested in reaching their full academic potential.
